Even the best greenhouse conditions make having a tray of perfectly matched plants a costly goal. But Spring Meadow Nursery in Grand Haven, Mich., found a way to reach that level of quality without straining its labor budget.
Spring Meadow’s sorting machine, PlugSorter ECO, which was customized for Spring Meadow’s needs by TTA USA, allows packs of immature plants to be divided, scanned for size, then sorted into size groups of like-sized plants before being regrouped back into a pack.
Check out the slideshow to see how it works.
